Is this paint good for Deck paint were I will be walking as well as no traffic decks? Will it also work on the hull above and below the water line?
According to the Petit website, this is a topside paint and you can get a non-skid additive. I used this paint on the bottom of my racing sailboat, but it is dry sailed. I would recommend it to other boats that are dry sailed and for topside paint.
Is EZPoxy2 really as easy to use as a one-part polyurethane? Does it seem as hard as other two-part paints?
No it is not as easy as the one part. It goes on thin and doesn't dry as quick in cooler temperatures. Can't say it seems any harder after drying than the one part.
No, its as easy as a one part, but it does flow on easily and the brush stokes smooth out well. Although my deck did not quite look like a spray job, it did come come out better than some of the other boats Ive looked at around the yard using different systems.You do have to work quickly, and once it starts to set up, which happens in a minute or less depending on temp, you can't go over that section again. You're definitely better off sanding out the goofs afterwords and redoing a small part, because you will only make it a bigger mistake if you try and catch it with a brush. I rolled and tipped the big areas with a 4" roller, and a foam brush, vertically when I could. I chucked the brush every time it started to get a little funky. First coat was a little rough, took a bit of sanding, figured it out on the second coat. The deck came out great. Read Petit's how to tips on there web site.I used Petit's recommended primer, and it covered a lot of crazing, but did not cover small pin holes in the fiberglass. It took a fair amount of sanding to get the primer smooth enough for the paint, but it sanded easily with a random orbit. I used 80 and 100 grit, and saw no scratches in the final product. I had to fill a lot of dings, tried the paint without the primer, and the areas with the filler came out blotchy without the primer. Even though much of the primer was sanded off, it must have filled the scratch marks in the filler, as the paint looked great over the areas where the filler had been used when primed before painting.It was a very doable project. Watch out for the paint card, I used Blue Moon White, and the color is way lighter than the card. That being said, it came out great. Tom
We usually use Perfection but customer choose this Pettit color. How bad could it be? Bad... Try as we may, we could not it to tip off and flatten out regardless of what 3 experienced boat painters did. We will never use this again

Easy to use
Working on port and stbd side gunwales, picked this product because of paint color "Blue Moon White". Used BioBlue to dewax; sanded and primed before covering with two finish coats (sanded between all coats). Turned out really well and saved a ton of money bying doing it myself.

JUST SAY NO!!!!!!!!!!
I am a marine professional: I decided to try this based off the claims of the manufacturer. Big mistake. 200 hours of body work thrown down the tubes by a paint system. Roll N tip method resulted in major alligator skin. Reason: Paint kicked off to fast not allowing for flowout. Spray: Resulted in very lumpy orange peel. Same reason as above. Worked with pettit engineers to figure out a way to slow the curing process. During conversation it came up that this paint is still in its experimental phases. Eng dropped off different reducer then what was packaged with product. Da'd entire boat down. started again. same results. Sent pics to eng, he suggested cut activator down. By the third and last time, i was using 15% thinner to a quart, 1 tsp of activator. Same results, paint would kick immediately when it hit the substrate not allowing for flow. Temp was 67' with 20% humidity. This paint system has a long way to go before it should be on the market. Boat will be re sanded in winter. And redone in awlgrip.
